Zoya Beach Collection Review

The Zoya Beach Collection is made up of six summery polishes, five cremes and one shimmery metallic. Let's get right to it, shall we?

First up is Wednesday. I might be biased because I love colors like this, but man this is pretty! I used three coats and the formula was great. It may have been a smidge on the thick side, but a drop or two of thinner would fix that in no time. The dry time was top notch as well, even with three coats. It's not quite as bright as this photo shows.

Mmmmm, Arizona. I was kicking myself for not buying China Glaze Papaya Punch when I found it on sale at Ulta, but Arizona totally fulfills my need for a bright mango orange! This is definitely a summer orange and not a pumpkin-y Halloween orange. Formula was absolutely perfect here too.

Here is my least favorite of the collection, Tracie. I'm not a fan of this shade of green and the bit of frostiness makes the application brushstroke-y. Other than the brushstrokes, the formula was good here too. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who will love this one, but it's not for me. Moving on...

Shelby is a bright, bubblegum pink. Very attention-grabbing. I think this one is too blue-toned for my skin, but I'll give it another shot in the summer when I have a bit of a tan. No formula issues here.

Lara is gorgeous! I can't really understand why there needed to be a total of five pink shades between the Beach & Surf collections, but I'm very thankful for Lara! Three easy, perfect coats were all that was needed for this cheery pink mani.

Last but not least is Reagan. Reagan seems very similar to Zoya Areej, so if you have one, you probably don't need the other unless you love berry shades like this. I only used two coats here; three would have been fine too, but it was perfectly opaque at two, so I left it there. I like this shade too, but I probably won't wear it that much to be honest.

My top picks for this collection are Arizona, Wednesday, and Lara. I'm very happy to have a bright orange creme to add to my collection and one can never have too many creamy turquoises! Stay tuned for the Surf collection review coming next week!

  1. I'm loving the same colors, see? this is how I pick what I may get. Fantastic pictures as always

  2. I feel the same way about all the Pinks in these collections. I like em as individual colors but IDK if I would have released them all together for one season.

  3. Hiiii!!! I think Surf and Beach are just one collection but as I can see they're not, I love the 2 1st shades though ! But will u buy the Surf collection? I(ve felt in love with that one !
    You remind me I don't have any Zoya polish (it's a shame!!! but I think I will start with this collection;))

    1. Hi coco! I have the Surf collection to review from Zoya and will hopefully be able to get it done and posted on Monday or Wednesday of next week. Keep an eye out!

  6. How do you clean up around your cuticles to get them looking so clean and even?

    1. I have a small make up brush that I dip in acetone and swipe along my cuticles to clean it up :)
